Ascribe to the Lord His glory, says the Psalmist, because his glory causes despair to flee - though we may not be sure why. And Job hears the same, "Have you an arm like God?" Because the strength of the Lord is blessed hope in our suffering - though we may not be sure how. So then the book of Hebrews is helpful for understanding the whole story of the Scriptures. In the first chapter we are to think on the Son who is above all, who is both glory and strength, but as the book unfolds we see his attributes allow him to bend his ear toward us. He is glorious to be our priest, and he is strong to bear our sin as the Lamb of God.


There is no God like him, whose greatness is for grace.
